ISG chosen to renovate former Eurostar terminal in Waterloo

ISG has been selected by developer LCR to renovate the former Eurostar terminal at London’s Waterloo station.

The £200m project will develop the disused terminal into a 12,500 sq m "retail, leisure and cultural" space according to ISG, a UK subsidiary of American holding company Cathexis.

Some 40 shops will be built across three floors, including a mezzanine level that will sit below the platforms.

As part of LCR’s £40m contract, South Bank entrances will be created to accommodate Waterloo’s growing passenger numbers.

The redevelopment is part of larger revamp of the station, where Network Rail is planning to use five former Eurostar platforms for suburban rail services.

The wider project team includes:

  • Arcadis as project manager, contract administrator and structural engineer
  • Corstorphine + Wright as architect and lead designer
  • QODA as services engineer
  • RPS as cost manager.

The Waterloo masterplan is being delivered in collaboration with the Department for Transport and Network Rail.

Steven McGee, ISG Construction South managing director, said: "Securing this transformational project at Waterloo marks a significant milestone for ISG, as we approach 11 years since we delivered a project in excess of £90m to fit out St Pancras Station."

ISG says the scheme will create 700 full-time jobs. Construction will begin in April 2019, and is due to be completed by early 2021.
